A yield sign indicates that a driver must prepare to come to a full stop and yield to vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians and vehicles with the right-of-way if either are present. If neither is present, the driver may proceed without stopping. If you are assuming it will be clear and it isn’t, you’ll stop late and perhaps block part of their path or perhaps have your vehicle struck by another vehicle. The point I am making is we must not ignore the “yield” signs.
However in life we must not stay in the fast lane so much that we miss God’s divine signals to yield and we keep going fast. What will happen, you will miss something very important that you need to know in this season of your life. I felt impressed to do an acronym on the word “yield”. I trust it will help you to remember not to miss your moment or take advantage of the moment God has created for you.
Y – Yes to start everyday with God in prayer and reading His Word. God would love to reveal to you what you need for that day if you slow down to ask Him. Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
Jeremiah 33:3 Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
I – Inquire of the Lord as often as needed. Don’t go through your day making assumptions about issues of life. James 4:3You have not because you ask not. Prayer is constant dialogue with the Lord. Prayer is all day living. Ask the Lord how you should handle this situation? How shall you respond to this issue? The Lord will show you.
E- Eyes. Keep your eyes fastened on the Word. Your solution is in Word. Psalms 34:4 They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces were not ashamed.
L- Listen. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word. You have to listen in order to have faith to find entrance into your heart. Proverbs 8:33-35 Hear instruction and be wise, And do not disdain it. 34 Blessed is the man who listens to me, Watching daily at my gates, Waiting at the posts of my doors.35 For whoever finds me finds life, And obtains favor from the LORD;
D- Doer. After you have slowed down enough to hear and receive the relevant Word for your situation. Then put your foot on your faith pedal and accelerate in completing your task, assignment, and goal.
James 1:25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.
